Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Tuesday, 31 January 2006

Sunday I went to Conrad Zero's house and sawed away on the cello for a while.  Four hours.  I learned a lot that day.  I learned that:

1) I am dependant on sheet music and conductors to a crippling degree.

2) Microphones make me just as nervous as cameras do.

3) Conrad and Colin are Very. Patient. People.  Also, good at creating a safe, low pressure environment.

4) All other things being equal, it takes longer to drive a specific distance in a snow shower than it does when it is bright and clear.

5) I gt stupid when I am sleepy.

OK, those last two weren't exactly revelations...but there you are.

I think that Conrad and Colin may have learned one important thing:

1) There is nothing false about my modesty.  When I say that I hadn't picked up the cello for years and have just recently worked my way up to elementry levels,  I mean it.

Fortunatly, they did not require much of me, and I think they got what they needed.

It was fun, intimidating, well outside my comfort zone, and completely the sort of experiance that I like to have.  I can't wait to do it again.

Here's a link to Conrad's entry:
